First and foremost, it is important to comprehend that it has never ever been our intent to offend anyone, but to give back to The People of NorCo the courage and fortitude they yearned for to stand up firmly and say: enough means ENOUGH!
As all who follow this blog are aware, over the past twelve years or so in NorCo - specifically the Slate Belt, a political miscreant - a microscopic percent of the commUNITY felt it was his duty to instill fear into the hearts of the very commUNITY that he was supposed to serve. And for the better part of those twelve years, it was good for him - until of course, a small band of unique brothers and sisters from across our great county assemble together and became involved, and made a difference - a herculean difference that not even the financially almighty of the county could have ever envisioned or imagine.
The group as a whole had but one burning desire in our hearts - to do what was then, and still is today...the morally right thing to do. And not just for the weak and the ill, the widows and orphans, but especially for all those who have no voice, and could not speak for themselves - all of our Alzheimer's/dementia afflicted citizens whom had no one else fighting for them.
We opened our genuine hearts to them, pouring out our compassion on them, and gratefully we discovered that we were not alone...three quarters of the county was behind us, and surely God was leading us - every step of the way.
With that said, we ask anyone, who at any point in time may have reasoned our meaning incorrectly, to understand that sometimes in the mist of battle, it's not always possible or sufficient to just put your hands up in a defensive posture...no, there are times when one must go on the offensive. Unfortunately, during the occasions when one is forced to strike back, there is always a possibility no matter how distant, that an unintended recipient may accidentally enter your range of impact, mistakenly receiving a wrongful blow...and certainly under those circumstances we can humble ourselves and plea for forgiveness.
Take note however, that we are not now, nor in the foreseeable future, willing to apologize to anyone for doing what we know to be morally right. And YES - we are willing to sit harmoniously with anyone desiring sincere and honest duologue to determine and define what is considered morally right for all, as long as they behave as they expect us to. With the understanding of course, that "morally right" begins with TRUTH, and truth is absolute - always applying to all.
But to those out there who prefer instead to instigate a fight, with a strong desire to hurt us, our posterity, and our senior citizens - we say...rest assured that we will don our armor, prepare for your attacks, and battle you till the very end, with absolutely no hesitation...because - We are The People.
